*MONDAY MANNA* /*January 14, 2019*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *What Will You Remember 20 Years From Now?* *By Jim Mathis** * The magazine ad for Lufthansa Airlines asked, "What moments will you still remember in 20 years?"

January 6th 2019

*MONDAY MANNA* /*January 7, 2019*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *Perils of Miscommunication* By Rick Boxx There is a simple principle that underscores a common pitfall in communications: “It is not what you say – it is EXACTLY what you say.” Failing to observe this can cause significant, even disastrous problems in business, as well as for relationships, as I learned all too clearly at an event I was overseeing. It was a major business luncheon for our organization, and the event h ...Continue Reading

Tamasy* With another Christmas just the wink of an eye away, most of us are filled with expectations. These expectations, of course, are based upon how we perceive the annual holiday.

Monday Manna - Shake it off and Step up

December 16th 2018

*MONDAY MANNA* /*December 17, 2018*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *Shake it off and Step up* *By Jim Mathis** * I was having breakfast with some friends when one of them mentioned a co-worker who was always having bad things happen. He had been suspended from work because he was late too many times. He was late because he ran out of gas. He ran out of gas because his fuel gauge didn't work. Presumably, he could not afford to get the fuel gauge repaired because he was suspended fr ...Continue Reading

*MONDAY MANNA* /*December 10, 2018*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *Compassion For "The Least of These"* By Austin Pryor With Christmas fast approaching, churches and Christian relief organizations are encouraging us to have a charitable and giving spirit toward the poor.

Many Christians use Je ...Continue Reading

*MONDAY MANNA* /*November 26, 2018*/ /*Twenty-one years at service to the world’s business community*/ *Conforming - Or Being Transformed?* *By Jim Langley* Have you noticed how easily we get caught up in doing things the way our culture dictates, becoming squeezed into the world’s mold? We find almost everyone conforming to the current trends, adopting the behaviors, values and beliefs endorsed by the entertainment media, popular books, the Internet and social media.
